The temps continue to rise here in ole San Antonio, hitting close to 80 degrees…in February!! Can you believe that? I hate the heat in the winter, it isn’t natural. It should be freezing, or at least coldish and raining here. Hmph, but I got in the game and made this Tropical Freeze.
This freeze is super easy, cheap and quick. It is great for quick entertaining when you need a dessert, or like me, I make a batch and portion out and freeze them so I can have them for snacks with low calories later. My favorite! Usually I do these freezes as a banana ice cream and coffee ice cream or even pumpkin pie ice cream…all made with bananas. They are all awesome, healthy and made of fruit only.
I got the frozen mango, pineapple and peaches from the Dollar Tree and already had the coconut milk so this dessert was only three dollars! Add cinnamon and this was awesome.
1 Bag Frozen Pineapple
1 Bag Frozen Mangos
1 Bag Frozen Peaches
1 1/2 C So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1. Defrost frozen fruit in microwave for 1-2 minutes (you want it a little soft).
2. Add fruit, milk and cinnamon to food processor or high-powered blender.
3. Process until fruit is pureed.

Ooh, even though it’s cold here, I’m always good for some chilled desserts – especially if they are healthy! Do you think this would work with almond milk?
It is good, and would be excellent with almond milk also – I had bought the coconut milk because I had a coupon, but you can use whichever kind you like. Enjoy!
Wow, so easy! It looks delicious. Thanks for sharing : )
Thanks! This turned out so good, and was really what I needed – fruity and delicious!
They look great! I’ve made the banana based freezes. I’m intrigued by the coffee flavor…and will give the tropical ones a try 🙂
I love the fruit “ice creams” or freezes. They are super easy, and can go as far as your imagination wants. I mean coffee ice cream for breakfast? And no sugar in it? Love it!
